From James Meola
Club V.P. and Club Match Director
Hello All,
We had great weather for our Rim Fire Challenge Match today, and because of the good weather and a little publicity, match announcements at a couple of other clubs, we had a record turnout of 18 competitors.  This number includes one of our new members that just joined our club last Friday.  Everyone seemed to have a great time and thanked us for our match and hospitality.
If any of you are interested in the match results, they can be viewed here: BRCV June 2019 Rimfire Challenge MatchArt Kruger, Nick DeMaria and myself administered the NRA Defensive Pistol class on Saturday and all of the attendees passed the course. All of the participants were encouraged to come out to Thursday nights Defensive Pistol Practice to hone their gun handling and safety skills. I sincerely hope they take advantage of this additional training.
I wish to say thank you to the entire club and Board of Governors for all of the support for our match efforts.
See you or talk to you all soon.
